Race hustler, Debo Adegbile, was nominated to head up the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division over the objections of the Fraternal Order of Police and a murdered officer’s wife. His nomination was effectively blocked today. However, Reid switched his vote from “yes” to “no” which will allow him to bring it up again at a future date.
Years after Mumia Abu-Jamal murdered police officer Daniel Faulkner in cold blood, Adegbile decided to take up his case and use it to promote himself. Adegbile didn’t simply defend Jamal, he organized rallies and race-baiting events to paint Jamal – falsely – as a political prisoner.
Seven Democrats and every Republican in the Senate voted Wednesday to block the nomination of Debo Adegbile. Adegbile was rejected by a vote of 47-52.
Democrats voting against Adegbile’s nomination: Heidi Heitkamp, Joe Manchin, Mark Pryor, Joe Donnelly, John Walsh, Chris Coons, and Bob Casey.
The wife of Daniel Faulkner was refused an opportunity to address Congress and has been closed out of all hearings.

Debo Adegbile, a radical lawyer, who fiercely defended and tried to free a remorseless cop-killer, is Mr. Obama’s nominee for the most important civil rights enforcement position in the country.
He would replace the very radical Thomas Perez.
Mr. Obama, by this action, makes it quite clear what he thinks of the police . This appointment is a slap in the face to all law enforcement.
Obama is also making it clear that these are the ethics he wants employed in the civil rights division.
Mr. Obama, as usual, has found the most despicable choice possible.
He nominated a man who is a radical, race-obsessed lawyer who tried to free Mumia Abu-Jamal, a heartless cop-killer.
Former NAACP lawyer Adegbile, has gone after a range of issues based on race such as employment background checks, extreme racial quotas in hiring, and school discipline. He lost a case before the Supreme Court last year arguing that much of America is a racist pit. (Shelby County, Alabama v. Holder).
This is obviously the ideology Obama wants upheld in the Department of Justice.
By applying these types of minority-biased rules, he is also saying that whites do not have rights. Mr. Obama is doing his part to keep Americans divided along racial lines.
On December 9, 1981, Philadelphia Officer Daniel Faulkner pulled over a car driven by William Cook, brother of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the former Wesley Cook. While Officer Faulkner and Cook were by the side of the road talking about the traffic stop, Cook struck the officer in the face.
Murdered officer Daniel Faulkner
Officer Faulkner tried to subdue Cook when Mumia ran across the street and shot Faulkner in the back. Faulkner returned fire, hitting Abu-Jamal in the shoulder.
Abu-Jamal shot Officer Faulkner five times, once in the face from a foot away while standing over him.
This was according to witnesses at the scene.
Abu-Jamal was later picked up in a hospital.
A hospital security guard heard Abu-Jamal saying, “I shot the Mother F…er and I hope he dies.”
Abu-Jamal was convicted and sentenced to death. Long after the crime Abu-Jamal decide cleverly made it into a race issue when he is simply a violent criminal who hates cops.
Abu-Jamal then set about making a career out of demonizing the police and whining about his sentence.
The radical left idolizes Mumia and sees him as a fighter against police oppression of minorities. There were “Free Mumia” signs throughout Occupy Wall Street.
Debo Adegbile fought to get him off death row and fought for him to be freed.
Adegbile got Mumia off death row on a trumped-up charge of improper jury instruction, which was not an issue in the early 1980’s.
Adegbile only extended his sympathy to the family of Officer Faulkner after he was nominated.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, The Fraternal Order of Police are writing directly to Mr. Obama to protest the appointment.
“This nomination can be interpreted in only one way: it is a thumb in the eye of our nation’s law enforcement officers,” Chuck Canterbury, president of the police group, wrote in the letter addressed to Obama.
